Forum: GratefulDead Subject: And then there was 33... or 76?

Everytime I think I've discovered the Grateful Dead, and know what they are all about, shortly after, I find out that I am wrong. I was laying in bed last night listening to -Dick's Picks 33-. 10/9-10/76. Amazing.. I have only listened to 10/9 so far, and the energy is ridiculous. I know I like a song when I can't help but laugh at how well it's being played, but for this night, I laughed several times. The sugaree, the most beautiful second verse solo i've heard yet. The -amazing- US blues. The solo is extended another verse, and the whole band is just ON. The samson and delilah. Normally I am not a fan of S&D, or US blues, but this samson was out of this world. Bob's energy, the drummers energy, donna was excellent. Normally I hear just "good Donna." Tonight she's on fire.. the Cassidy is short and sweet as a doughnut, the MINGLE WOOD BLUES is phenomenal for jerry. He's just straight messing around on guitar he is so "on" for this song. the tennessee jed is really was fantastic, and jerry gets pretty experimental, and it works out. the stephen>NFA>stephen. No commentary needed on that, the Help>slip>frank (actually help>slip>drums>samson>slip>frank, ha) is amazing!! jerry carries out the most amazing solos, while bob totally backs jerry with inventive original rhythm.
So far I've gone from 77>74>73>dabbling in '72>76 I've always dabbled in 80's shows though.. early 80's ones. GD makes me go crazy! Such inventiveness.

anyways, what dick's picks do you guys like?

I totally agree with you there. And wait till you here 10-10! I think it's the best-ever Dancin', the whole first set is tight, and the Playin' medley is very strong.

one week!! thank you so much for caring. You know when my program is done yet my sister doesn't! =/ Anyways, I am still watching them! I've been getting caught up in '76 audio and tigerbolt's volumes. Jerry did nail that 3/24/87 terrapin though, got me tapping -both- my feet! :P they're the best. It's funny, at times in that 3/24 video, those audience was so ecstatic you couldn't hear the band! added to the music, imo. Take care! i'm off to register for classes

By the time you return to this you will probably have heard 10/10, my first Grateful Dead concert.

And that was all she wrote.

One of the really cool things about those shows, too, was that after the Dead, there was The Who.

Hi Max,

I love DP33 as well. DP19 (10/19/73), DP8 (Harpur), DP22 (early '68 stuff), and DP15 (Englishtown '77), are my favorites at the moment. DP21 (1985) has a wild song selection, though the 1st set is a bit flat.

A good one that gets little attention is DP25 (5/10-11 '78). Solid 1st sets and decent pre-drums, but the action comes after space on both. NFA > absolute best ever Stella > a great A&A > Wherewolves encore on one, and a fine TOO > brilliant Wharf rat > wild Sugar Mag > great J B. Goode on the other. Great mix on everything, and it's a decent amount of music... Not the best one out there, but good stuff for those looking to add some quality '78 to the collection (along with The Closing of Winterland of course).

Max: Can you do me a favor? When you finally discover the "Grateful Dead, and know what they are all about," can you please tell me the answer? I need to clean out the attics of my life. Thanks, --- AshesRisibg

aahahah -- sure thing there buddy!!

man, listening a show a day -- of just grateful dead, it would take about 6 years to listen to everything.. and who has the luxury of listening to a show a day? The dead make me go crazy, and kick at air :] just hopefully not dead air. But really, it's like girls and guys with beatlemania in the 60's.. but I caught a rare case of necrophilia (sorry, I had to say it) and I just loveeeeeeeee the dead. So creative.. '76 is an amazing year. a breakthrough year
